Balloon lifespan needs reduced by an order of ten.
It's a fantastic little toy and I love playing with them but you get more than three people in one room and it's going to look like everyone just bowled a perfect game. Making them pop faster is really all you need to do to fix it, so long as they linger long enough to kick them around a minute first.
lol baloons, look more like blown up condoms to me specialy the enterprise one
I really do love this popper, but we've reached a point where something needs to be done to control the amount of festive effects that can bombard player's screens at a time.
A "disable festive effects" filter, I imagine, shouldn't be too hard to implement. Basically flag all the popper animations as a festive effect, then have a checkbox to disable those under the options menu. You'll see people use poppers, but no animations or objects from those poppers will be seen or heard from your end.
Considering the framerate drop massive amounts of these balloons tend to produce (even though they all despawn after a certain number of them are generated on the map at any time), it's about time we get a festive effect filter into the game.
everyone clam down they are fine people are going crazy its only the second day of the event it happens every time people will get bored of them and will stop doing it just a new toy right now so sit back and join the fun that the devs made for us for us.
Sorry, it's not "fun" for me when I'm trying to dump my inventory on the exchange and my screen locks up due to 50,000 balloons clogging up the zone.
so go the the other stations there 3 stations you can go to with so many instances it will stop just like the breen just like the tribbles just don't log in then until event over really people are having fun or lower your graphics until the party is over

These actually seem to be causing a decent amount of lag for me, when too many are deployed around my character. It would be nice to shorten the life-span of them a bit, for that reason. I'm not sure if anyone else is experiencing the same thing..
Yes, I am also having lag problems when I get around too many of those balloons.
